Franco Testimonial

Fast at 67

Stryd told me to race 10k at 211 watts. I pushed up to 220 watts in the second half of the race and I finished with a great time of 42:53. Thanks Stryd! It made me forget I am 67 years old.

Trust the Process, Trust the Numbers

Trust the Process, Trust the Numbers

I ran the Eugene marathon today, and am very pleased with the results.  It wasn’t a perfect race, but pretty close. PowerCenter recommended a power target of 257W with an estimated finishing time of 3:39:39 (+/- 5 minutes). In the end, I overran a few miles in the middle, struggled with the last 6 miles a bit, and finished with an average power of 253W and a time of 3:42:23 — still pretty freaking close to the targets. I restarted running almost exactly two years ago, my first run was 1.85 miles at 12:03 min/miles. My previous PR in the marathon was from 2011 and was 4:15:27 — to say that I’m happy with the improvement is a massive understatement. If you’re new to power: Trust the process, trust the numbers, they may not be exactly perfect, but they are always awfully close.  

More Confidence

Confidence to Trust in Myself 

I’d like to share my success story.  After 12 weeks of a high-volume HM training plan, I tried the PowerRace app today and ran the half marathon. I couldn’t be happier. Stryd predicted I would finish in 1:29:40, which I thought was too ambitious. I managed to finish it in 1:29:55. I improved my PR  by 8 minutes! 14K into the race, I thought that I would not be able to hold the pace. But I did — and I literally finished the run on the last bit of energy I had left. This really gave me the confidence to trust in myself and trust my Stryd. And, I might add, during the power-based training plan, I had a higher weekly volume than ever before, but I never felt overtrained or something.  Really spot on. Kudos to this product.

Game Changer

Stryd is a Game Changer

Today was my first real race with Stryd. It was an 8 mile race. Target power 268, was able to push this up to 269 by the end of the race. I finished 2 seconds faster than predicted time. Stryd has been such a game changer for me. I always struggled with pacing and often would psych myself out in the second half of a race. Now, I am evenly & confidently pacing my races.

Precision Pacing

Precision Pacing

In every single consulting engagement we cannot stress enough the importance of data to support decision making. Guess what…running is the same and Stryd makes that possible using power as a key metric to follow.  For my half marathon on Saturday, Stryd proposed to keep my power at 299 W and predicted a time of around 1:43 based both on temperature & humidity profile during training and expected for the race. Personally never thought I could keep that power level for so long but not only was Stryd right but the pace consistency I ended up achieving was unreal for an amateur runner like me... 👍

Paul Testimonial

Stryd predicted my personal record

After my last race, a 10k on 1st May at 361W, my coach agreed it was 350W or bust for my last race of the spring, my local London Half Marathon. That was a challenge but mission accomplished. A 32s PB and a three watt improvement over my last half marathon.

Damien's Testimonial

41 minute PR

I just completed the 88km Comrades Ultra using Stryd. Stryd was absolutely critical to holding back in the first half of the race so I could conserve energy for the second half. The result? 41 minutes faster than 2017. I set PRs on all the segments in the second half. Thanks, Stryd.

Matt's Testimonial

I’m on my way to crushing that PR.

First in person race in 18 months! I am extremely impressed with the progress I’ve made while using Stryd for about 10 months now. The HM training plan has increased my speed tremendously and Stryd has been beyond helpful in helping me get used to running by feel. My HM PR is 1:56, so hopefully, after this 1:15 10-mile effort, I’m on my way to crushing that PR. So excited to share this with all of you and excited to see what the next few months brings!

Melanie's Testimonial

Definitely accurate

Today was my first proper race event since getting my Stryd pod back in November. A local 10K to get my season off the ground. Stryd estimated my time for the course and conditions at 51:16 +/- 2 mins. My actual time was 52:38 so it was definitely accurate. I focused on my target watts alone. I didn't have my pace or heart rate on display. I was 3 watts off my target pace but still within the target time range so all good.

Ian's Testimonial

I was absolutely going for it.

First time racing with Stryd today. Thankful for getting to run a race finally! It was a trail race, very mixed surface and undulating at just over 4 miles. It's actually the Irish edition of the Backyard ultra today but they have a separate race of one loop beforehand. Projected power was 296 and it was hard to hit with the terrain but I was fairly close. The projected time was 30:33 and I came in just under that at 30:00. Long story short, the prediction was pretty much bang on. This is a great bit of kit for pacing.
